Samsung Galaxy Exhibit Review
Listening through the earpiece, we’re able to make out voices with relative ease. However, it doesn’t feature noise-cancelling technology, which means that it picks up all background noise.


With very light usage, which consists of web surfing, sending emails, and replying to text messages, we’re able to get almost two whole days out of its 1500 mAh battery.


Now that the Exhibit has been accepted into the Galaxy line, you’d think that we’d be given a versatile entry-level model that could easily stand head above water over other similar offerings. Sadly, the Galaxy Exhibit fails to impress us with its egregiously slow performance, which is its biggest Achilles Heel. Certainly, some might be attracted to its down payment of $19.99 with 24 months of paying $9 each month thereafter, but it undoubtedly doesn’t warrant our attention due to its unflattering looks, void features set, and painfully slow raw performance.

Software version of reviewed unit:
Android version: 4.1.2
Build number: JZO54K
Kernel version: 3.0.31

The Nokia Lumia 520 is much much better than this device.

Samsung just can’t stop flooding the market with plastic junk

I have had this thing for ten months. This phone is a piece of garbage and the designer should be fired.

it's a good 4g phone for someone who don't want to spend money who just need to have phone navigation and browsing is good but you will always face memory problems and battery drains fast
